LA Live is an overrated area of Los Angeles. It is mainly a teenager/tourist type of area near the LA Convention Center and Staples Center. There is also a couple of hotels nearby. Most of LA Live is dedicated to over priced stores and restaurants....More

We attended a reception while at a conference. Athough we were trapped in a fenced area, we still had to have bag search and go through metal detectors. The food from Wolfgang Puck was reasonable, but there was little space to move around or eat....More

The large T.V's playing all kinds of sports related stuff was awesome. My sons are avid sports fans and we're excited to see Fox Sports set up giving commentary on live TV. The restaurants were good quality. There is a ton of parking.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
